If you become a member during the september period, without an IT-certificate, you will follow the IT-course. This course allows you to learn the skills required to safely climb indoor toprope. The course takes 4 weeks, with an exam and a chance for a resit.
When you become a member you can be put into a mentor group if you want. This is to help you meet other new members while under the guidance of your mentors. Of course there are plenty of other opportunities to meet other members, both new and old, at the activities being organized
At the subscription evening, the board gives a talk with information about the association and provides help with meeting the requirements for membership. It is important to be present during these dates. If you really can not be present, you can send an email to the board.
What you need to do to become a member, is explained on the membership page. An overview of the requirements is included below:
IT certificate - Make sure you have an IT certificate before the subscription evening. You can let your IT certificate be approved at the subscription evening, or earlier by emailing a picture of your IT certificate to the board.
Annual student sports rights - Purchase annual student sports rights before the subscription evening. You can let your sports rights be approved at the subscription evening, or earlier by emailing your name and WBA number to the board (firstname.lastname@example.org). You can purchase annual student sports rights online or at the service desk in Sports Centre the Bongerd. If that doesn't work because you are a PhD student, you can send an email to the secretarial employee of the Bongerd (email@example.com). If you cannot manage to purchase annual student sports rights before the subscription deadline, let us know why that is at the subscription evening, or earlier by email.
Website account - Register on the website before the subscription evening. You can fill out your website account and let it be approved at the subscription evening, or earlier by filling out your account at home and asking for approval by email.
